Hobos. Diet Ppsi. Calaway Park.
I just finished watching Emperor Of The North Pole. A bit like a Sunday afternoon film for kids, but with Ernest Borgnine hitting hobos in the head with hammers.
It has Lee Marvin in it.
Along with diet cola and greasy pizza, Lee Marvin is comforting to me. Weekends spent at my Dad's house as an adolescent eating, drinking, and watching Lee prance around berating someone to do something like kill Nazis or....kill Nazis.
My inbox contained an email about Gowan. Now, I had to second guess my memory, but I think I saw Gowan at Calaway Park when i was a kid, or my sister and cousin did and I stole their memory.
But the Volkswagen Beetle with the stickers all over the windscreen and the periscope out the top, that's mine and no else's.
Some more details about a curated solo show of mine in Montreal in October should be forthcoming soon.
